The Sharks have named their side to face the Western Force in Durban on Friday night. The occasion marks the 50th Super rugby caps for loosehead prop Beast Mtawarira and scrumhalf Rory Kockott.
As predicted, the team looks very similar to the one that downed the Stormers last Saturday, with flanker Willem Alberts the only casualty. Jean Deysel moves over to the blind side of the scrum, handing the number 6 jersey to Jacques Botes, who moves up from the bench. The backline remains unchanged, with Ruan Pienaar again at flyhalf.
A change to the bench composition sees an extra back in the form of scrumhalf Charl McLeod join the squad. Keegan Daniel will be the only loose forward reserve.
